    As you may or may not have seen in the competition thread, I have painted the GBAtemp mascot onto the side of my Wii. [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    She's a beauty, isn't she? [​IMG]

    I think it turned out really well. Still the same old paint texture I have on my DS but there are some advantages with the Wii: The color doesn't get damaged because I don't touch it all the time. Also, I didn't paint the whole shell so it doesn't destroy the overall appearence but instead enhances it quite nicely. [​IMG]

    Here you can see many more images of the whole production process:

    All I have to say is that you've improved since last time.

    There's one on the link he gave above.
    Then clic on the blue picture on the right and on the 'more' just below.


    Anyway, I like your logo.
    the lineart is just fine.

    When I read OrR and Wii in the same topic title I instantly thought "WAHOO! LAUGHS!" but unfortunantely you actually did a pretty okay job [​IMG]

    Maybe. I'd love to but I can't really afford another one. I need to buy a Lite some of these days and get one of them nice replacement shells and then I might do it. Would be more interesting to do a Phoenix Wright theme, though. I don't like monotony. [​IMG] My next project is my red Wiimote & Nunchuk shells, though. They are preordered already. When they arrive, I plan to pimp them with a Red Steel theme. Let's see how that turns out...

    anyone else notice how closely the shape of the Wii matches that of the original gameboy? I'd like to see someone paint their wii like that...

    Seriously OrR, don't nintendo products have some sort of restraining order against you? Not allowed to be within 30 feet or something.. [​IMG]

    Nah, really I like it. I wouldn't do it to mine but at least it didn't move me emotionally in a bad way like your DS did.

    Hurray for OrR the Mod God!!

    Turned out much better than the DS [​IMG] No more metallic paint, ever!

    Btw to all those who don't like the DS, I hope they realise that with all of the fame it's gathered it must be worth loads on EBay. Not that he'd ever sell it, but it's a nice thought [​IMG]
